Famous quotes containing the word childhood:

    The childhood shows the man,
    As morning shows the day.
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    Toddlerhood resembles adolescence because of the rapidity of physical growth and because of the impulse to break loose of parental boundaries. At both ages, the struggle for independence exists hand in hand with the often hidden wish to be contained and protected while striving to move forward in the world. How parents and toddlers negotiate their differences sets the stage for their ability to remain partners during childhood and through the rebellions of the teenage years.
    Alicia F. Lieberman (20th century)

    Pleasing illusion: “if my childhood had been the Paradise it should have been, all would now be well.”
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
